|Free-Spinning-Tunnel Investigation of a 1/17 Scale Model of the Cessna T-37A Airplane - Bowman, James S., Jr.|
Results of an investigation of a dynamic model in the Langley 20-foot free-spinning tunnel are presented. Erect spin and recovery characteristics were determined for a range of mass distributions and center-of-gravity positions. The effects of lateral displacement of the center of gravity, engine rotation, nose strakes, and increased rudder area were investigated.

|PHASE TRANSFORMATIONS DURING THERMAL TREATMENT OF ALLOY VT18 - KOROBOV, O. S.|
THE VT18 ALLOY WAS INVESTIGATED DURING HEAT TREATMENT, AND IT WAS SHOWN THAT AT TEMPERATURES BELOW 930 DEG, THE ALPHA SUB 2-PHASE AND SOME OF THE BETA-PHASE ARE PRESENT, APART FROM THE ALPHA-MATRIX. DURING AGING, THE CHANGES ARE DETERMINED BY THE FORMATION OF THE ORDERED ALPHA SUB 2-PHASE. AFTER LONGER EXPOSURE, THE BETA-PHASE DECOMPOSES. THE INSTABILITY OF VT18, AT WORKING TEMPERATURES, IS DUE TO THE ORDERING OF THE ALPHA-SOLID SOLUTION AND DECOMPOSITION OF THE BETA-PHASE.

We introduce a new type of x-ray telescope design; an Equal-Curvature telescope. We simply add a second order axial sag to the base grazing incidence cone-cone telescope. The radius of curvature of the sag terms is the same on the primary surface and on the secondary surface. The design is optimized so that the on-axis image spot at the focal plane is minimized. The on-axis RMS (root mean square) spot diameter of two studied telescopes is less than 0.2 arc-seconds...

|Summary of Available Data Relating to Reynolds Number Effects on the Maximum Lift Coefficients of Swept-Back Wings - Sweberg, Harold H.|
The available foreign and American data relating to Reynolds number effects on the maximum lift coefficients of swept-back wings are summarized and discussed. The data show that at low Reynolds numbers (below about 2.0 x 10(exp 6)) higher maximum lift coefficients were measured in most cases for moderately swept-back wings than for unswept wings of similar plan form; at high Reynolds numbers, however, increasing sweepback resulted in decreasing maximum lift coefficients...

In October 1958, the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) was asked to absorb the Army Ballistic Missile Agency (ABMA) space group, but an agreement was reached two months later for the group to remain with the Army while being responsive to NASA. This decision was to be reconsidered and reversed within a year. The competition in large launch vehicles between NASA, ARPA (Advanced Research Projects Agency), Air Force, and Army begun in 1958, continued into 1959...

|Water Surface Currents, Short Gravity-Capillary Waves and Radar Backscatter - Atakturk, Serhad S.|
Despite their importance for air-sea interaction and microwave remote sensing of the ocean surface, intrinsic properties of short gravity-capillary waves are not well established. This is largely due to water surface currents and their effects on the direct measurements of wave parameters conducted at a fixed point. Frequencies of small scale waves propagating on a surface which itself is in motion, are subject to Doppler shifts...

|Analysis of Flow-System Starting Dynamics of Turbopump-Fed Liquid-Propellant Rocket - Krebs, Richard P.|
Two rocket configurations with turbopump drive were investigated analytically. In one configuration the inlet pressure to the turbine was fixed at the design value. The second configuration employed a ''bootstrap'' technique for supplying energy to the turbine. An injector was the chief resistance between the pump and the rocket combustion chamber. From the analysis two parameters were developed from which the speed response time of the turbopump, the flow response time, and the maximum dynamic ...

|Increasing Density and Reducing Costs of Data Acquisition - Schmalzel, J. L.|
There are a number of reasons why it is important to increase the density of data acquisition functions. Sensor fusion seeks to integrate large numbers of sensors into a decision network. Addition of health monitoring functions may incur additional sensor requirements. But at the same time, it is important to reduce the per-channel costs of data acquisition systems. Often the most significant cost is the management of data acquisition networks, which incurs substantial costs associated with tran...
